Now I know what some of you are thinking, "Oh great another Death Metal band that is going to sound the same." Normally I would agree with you. But this band is not just a normal Death Metal band. Sure you can hear the Death Metal influence but there is also a Doom Metal influence in there as well. Now I know that there is a genre called Doom Death Metal, or something on the lines of that. And I have to say this might be the first album I have listen to of this type of genre (Even tho the band says they are just Death Metal).

What I like about this album is that it had the Death Metal sound and it was in your face; but it wasn't one of those albums that was fast the whole time. There were songs that had build up and slow parts to them. I really like that in an album; where you are expecting to all sound the same then they change it up on you. 

The opening track, "i.d.t.n.", starts off slow, even has a piano in the background, with sorta soft spoken lyrics going on. The opening track lead straight in the second track, "One Death," the drums start to kick over this awesome riff. Listening to this first track I thought to myself "Are they sure they are a Death Metal band?" But right I thought that the third and fourth track, "Arisen From Failure Perished As King" and "Tod & Teufel,"started to play and then there was no denying that they are a Death Metal band. The lead singer has a great voice and mixes so while with the Death/Doom sounds of the instruments. 

The overview of this album said that "...Tod & Teufel is catchy, classic, melancholic, dirty and brutal but contemporary Death Metal..." I would have to agree with this statement. I believe that there will be a lot of Death Metal fans that will enjoy with albums.

Rating: 9/10
